Jesus, the Christ of God,
The Father’s blessèd Son,
The Father’s bosom Thine abode,
The Father’s love Thine own.

Jesus, the Lamb of God,
Who us from hell to raise
Hast shed Thy reconciling blood;
We give Thee endless praise.

God, and yet man, Thou art,
True God, true man art Thou;
Of man, and of man’s earth a part,
One with us Thou art now.

Great sacrifice for sin,
Giver of life for life,
Restorer of the peace within,
True ender of the strife.

To Thee, the Christ of God,
Thy saints exulting sing;
The bearer of our heavy load,
Our own anointed king.

True lover of the lost,
From Heav’n Thou camest down,
To pay for souls the righteous cost,
And claim them for Thine own.

Rest of the weary, Thou!
To Thee, our rest, we come;
In Thee to find our dwelling now,
Our everlasting home.
